Here We Go!

The First Assignment

We're Headed to Cambodia!!
with Engineering Ministries International

Over the last few years God has been teaching us greatly about trusting Him and investing our hearts into all that He calls us to. We have always had a heart for overseas missions and God has provided an opportunity for us to serve with Engineering Ministries International (eMi). The ministry utilizes God given talents to address the physical needs of people in order to gain access to meeting their spiritual need for Jesus Christ. 
eMi is a non-profit Christian organization made up of architects, engineers, and design professionals who use their skills to help children and families around the world step out of poverty and into a world of hope. They directly serve Christian ministries through designing development projects that are necessary for the ministries to function, grow, and thrive in their region. Each of the ministries eMi serves has a focus of helping the poor and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. eMi helps design projects like schools, hospitals, orphanages, bridges, clean water systems, and other technical designs.

We, as a family, will be helping launch a field office with eMi in Cambodia where we will be living full time. This office will serve the Southeast Asia region that includes Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and a few other countries. Chris will serve as a civil engineer while in the field office with a primary focus on designing clean water systems, wastewater management, and site planning. 

Chris will also be leading three project trips each year that include a team of 5-10 design volunteers from all over the world to work directly with a ministry in the region. The volunteers will spend two to three weeks in country. Then over the next four months Chris will manage the final design and construction documents to meet the needs of the client ministry. During those four months Chris will work closely with local Christian interns not only to mentor them with the design process, but also disciple them to encourage their spiritual growth. We are really excited to partner with eMi and join in their investment into God’s Kingdom. 

                Though God has called us into this ministry, we need people like you to partner with us. We need people who will pray for us and people who will make a financial investment in our ministry. We ask that you prayerfully consider partnering with us through prayer and financial support at $100 monthly or some other amount. Thank you for considering partnering with us in obedience to God’s calling on the next stage of our lives.
